My Friend, Joe

I was a partner in a bar in Media some years back. We had Karaoke every Sunday(JohnnyFamous). Marvis and Joe Frazier would show up from time to time. Joe would sing his version of “My Way” every time.  Marvis got everyone at the bar together and said, “When my Father starts singing, we need everyone to run out of the Bar” This was a take off of the TV commercial that Joe was in a few years earlier. He had a Vegas act at one time YEARS ago but Joe just flat out couldn’t sing. So, Joe started to sing, we all ran out of the bar, and Joe kept singing. He said, “I knew everyone would be back because you all left your drinks here, Marvis is to cheap to leave a drink unfinished”. Marvis, you have my deepest sympathies. Rest in Peace, Joe.Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding.
